What else should you know?

Christ Community Health has two locations. Be sure to confirm the correct location for your appointment.
You will be assigned to a specific Care Team that will manage your health care. You may read more about Care Teams and Patient Centered Medical Homes in our Policies
We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most private insurance plans.
Discounted fees are available to those who qualify. To apply for discounts, you must complete our Application for Fee Discounts and provide Proof of Income. (Discounts are based on total household income and size.)
We perform some bloodwork, labs and tests in-house. These are not included in the cost of your office visit. Your Care Team can answer any questions you have about lab fees.
